In an Equal Money System ‘politicians’ as such will not exist – but there will be positions that need to be taken where a certain level of responsibility is required.  These positions will be filled based on democratic elections – and the best way to describe such a function would be that of an ‘administrator’ rather than a ‘leader’. An important aspect of such a function is that one will only be allowed to do it for 1 term – which would be 1 or 2 years, after which a new administrator is elected to take over your function, after which one will not be allowed to pose as candidate for administrator again. This is to make sure that there is never any possibility for misuse of power – and it also makes clear where the focus must lie: on the principle, not on the personality.

Remember that in an equal Money System everyone will be supported from birth to become a fully self-responsible and effective living being. Hence there will be no requirement for leadership as it exists today – because that is in fact based on separation where the majority have abdicated their responsibility towards their reality and towards the whole world to a select group of people, to have them be responsible, and who are then given carte blanche to abuse in the name of ‘the common good’.

In an Equal Money system great responsibility will be expected from everyone – because only when taking responsibility for oneself and one’s world – can one really be an honorable being. Therefore the current system of politics and entertainment is a system that promotes dishonor, limitation and slavery. To give away one’s responsibility is an act of fear – because one is unwilling to face that self- is in fact responsible. Is it then such a mystery that in today’s world everyone blames the politicians and the elite?  Blame is much easier than taking responsibility – and it also indicates that self is still unwilling to take responsibility and will divert all attention from this fact through blaming another.

In an Equal Money System such behavior will not be accepted – and all will be supported to face their inner demons and learn to take responsibility for themselves and their reality.  What is currently being tested and explored within the Desteni I process is already showing that it is possible for a being to take directive charge of themselves and their lives – and that one can learn how to stop ones self-obsessed way of existing and that it is possible to live in a way that is considerate of others as equal as self. 

In an Equal Money system there will be no separation between ‘politicians’ and ‘the public’ – because everyone will simply be empowered to take responsibility wherever they can. This will in turn make the media as it currently exists obsolete because the media has mainly existed as a tool or a medium that stood in between the public and the politicians – a tool that does not exist for the purpose of providing clarity and clear communication, but to divert attention and hide the real important issues.

In an Equal Money system the administrators will not have to be worried about what the media will say about them – as the media will no longer be an institution based on manipulation, gossip and profit, but instead be a collaboration of people, based on real interest and passion, on how to organize and disseminate information locally and all around the world. Within this the emphasis will be to allow for all perspectives to equally be heard and equally be accessible. This will be done through giving everyone in fact equal access to the same technology that allows for such communication to exist. The way to do that is by giving everyone Equal Money from birth to death.  No more marginalization.

What must be considered within this is that ‘free access’ to goods and products does not come without responsibility. In the current consumerist system everyone with enough money can give themselves access to a product or technology – without any self-responsibility of the ‘consumer’ being required as such. Thus, someone can buy a product, without taking full responsibility for it, because after one has acquired ‘ownership’ of the product, being the owner implies that one can dispose of the product as one pleases, which implies that one have ‘the right’ and the ‘free choice’ to for instance be careless with it or to use it in an abusive manner.  This kind of abuse will no longer be tolerated in an Equal Money system, because it extends to all areas where a sense of ‘ownership’ exists: it will bring with it ‘the right to abuse’. This is also clear in relations between parents and children for instance, where the parents perceive the child is in a way their property. This point however will be developed in more depth in another article. Let’s for the moment return to the point of politicians.

In an Equal Money system a ‘politician’ will simply be a servant – a guardian of the system – who makes sure that in the first place the Equal Money System keeps running, so that everyone is at all times supported,  and secondly ensures the administration of all the collective decision making processes on how the system can be improved.

Practically this means that he or she will have to administer online forums that are accessible to all and anyone.  In these forums suggestions will be shared in a structured manner so that each participant is able to asses whether what is said is best for all or if it requires improvement to be able to stand as a the solution to a problem or as a viable alternative to an already existing approach. This means that there will be communication regulations one have to adhere to, to make the process as effective as possible. For instance one will have to explain the problem, why or where the current solution is not yet best for all – and how the new solution is superior to the old one in that it solves more problems and is more beneficial to all participants.

Hence one must understand that all political decisions will be made in complete openness where the process of how a decision was made can completely be traced back in all its steps.

The role of the media in this regard will be limited – as there will be no more ‘secrets’ to reveal or hidden plots to expose. Hidden politics will simply not be allowed. Everything must always immediately be shared in a public forum so that there is full transparency at all times.

If you are interested in a future where everyone has an Equal say and where all Life is Equally valued – I would say don’t wait and join us.

When watching the last zeitgeist movie – what really struck me is in the second half of the movie, the approach that is being laid out for ‘Humanity’s survival’. Peter Joseph goes on to explain the ‘strategies’ humanity can use to ‘secure’ its continued existence on Earth. What I found fascinating is the approach that is taken towards earth and the resources of the earth. In the movie we are shown this computerized view of the planet and how to detect and manage all the resources effectively – and how to integrate that management into one management system. It seems the only concern of the Movement is the survival of the Human no matter what. Yes – the earth is taken into consideration from an ‘ecological perspective’ though only within the consideration of how to extend humanity’s existence on earth as long as possible. Though, one could ask: what is the point? Why should the human being continue to exist at all cost? What if humanity is the problem – and not the solution?

I am not asking this question out of some ‘hate towards humanity’ – though simply because I observe that the approach taken within the Zeitgeist Movement is very much similar to the approach of a parasite. The parasite does not actually care about the well-being of its host – but only ’keeps it alive’ as a form of control to maintain its own existence. From that perspective the parasite only makes profit calculations to ‘maximize’ its own ‘wellbeing’ – which is exactly the approach we see within the ‘resource management systems’ of the Zeitgeist project. There is no actual consideration for the earth for instance – nor any real questioning of humanity’s place within existence. So, in a way Zeitgeist is still operating from the starting point laid out in the creation story of the bible, where it is stated that the earth and it’s creatures are ‘created for man’ – ‘are given to man’ as it’s ‘property’, free for them to use.

The ‘problem’ as we state at Desteni – is the starting point human beings are acting from in this reality. If the starting point is not ‘what is best for all’ within the consideration of oneness and equality of all in existence – then what future can there ever be for Humanity? Should we not look at why we are here – before we continue our struggle for survival?

The belief underlying Zeitgeist is that one can ‘technically’ solve the crisis humanity is in currently. This leads to certain considerations and strategies that do have some merit – though if the considerations are limited to the survival of the human, do they really solve the problem?

This is why the process proposed by Desteni primarily implies an existential transformation of the human being – ‘existential’, meaning: who we are as human beings as part of the whole. How to become a dignified life form that considers all life equally? The solutions we propose, such as the equal money system and the equal labor system – are only practical points that serve to facilitate the realization of man as one and equal as all life. At the moment such considerations are not able to be made by the majority as humanity is currently consumed by survival only in the current money system – only seeing reality through the ‘eyes of fear’ and ‘how can I survive’. Without political and economical intervention there is no way such considerations can open up within the majority of human beings. Simplistically – you cannot sit down with yourself and sort out ‘who you are’ if you don’t even know if you’ll have food tomorrow, or if you’ll still have a job tomorrow…

So – from that perspective we agree with Zeitgeist that the current system makes the human pathological – and that a change is required in the human environment to better support the human. Though such ‘technical adjustments’ can only ever be meaningful if they are placed in a context of a re-education of the human, that involve an ‘internal process’ of self-forgivenes and self-honesty as well. In a way that is the point that has been ‘missed’ throughout human history – causing the human to only re-create the same suffering generation after generation after generation because the knowledge is never able to be placed into practical application.

For instance, why does anger exist?  Why does desire exist? How come human beings create beliefs? Why do human beings fear eachother? Why do human beings have a tendency to want power over eachother? Why are human beings unable to actually act according to their understanding, but instead always betray themselves? Is any of that necessary? Is it possible for the human to purify his inner self and live that into his outer world? These are important questions to ask – if we want to stop the cycles of abuse that we have created for ourselves and actually create ‘Heaven on Earth’.

So, I strongly encourage anyone who is able to – to investigate what we are doing at Desteni and the desteniiprocess to see how individuals are able to expand and transcend their fear and become expressive human beings who consider and work towards what is best for all.
